The Counselling Unit at the University of Strathclyde is excited to offer an innovative, restructured and enhanced Level 2 training in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) for counsellors and psychotherapists (Diploma level or above) who have completed Level One training in EFT.  This nine–day series consists of three separate three-day modules, spread over the 2017-2018 academic year to allow participants to begin to implement EFT in their client work. This intensive training is broader and more in-depth than EFT level 1 or the previous EFT level 2, in particular adding training in the specialised empathy skills required to carry out EFT.  The format will be a mixture of brief lectures, videos or demonstrations, experiential practice exercises in small groups, and discussion.

Day 1: Accessing Empathic Resonance; Evocative Empathy and Empathic Affirmation
